Dryer heats but not enough. Takes 2-3 cycles to completely dry. Machine is 3 years old and problem just started. Thank you

Hi Anthony, thank you for the question. Based on the description that you have provided, we would recommend you check the venting system and clean the lint screen. If that is not the issue, we would suggest replacing the cycling thermostat, part number PS11745959. It monitors and regulates the temperature inside the dryer. We hope this sorts out your problem!

Dryer motor runs, but no heat
To reach the heating element you only need to open the back cover of the dryer (about 8 nut-head screws). Remember to disconnect the power.

To remove the heating element there are two small nut-head screws. Remove the two electric wires. Then you can pull the heating element away.

You can check the heating element with an ohm-meter or visually inspect it to see if the heating element spiral wire is broken.

Don't hurry to dispose the old element. My model includes a small electric safety part. You'll need to transfer it to the new heating element (that comes without it)..

Good luck.

No Heat
First tried heating element and thermal fuse with no luck. Ordered thermal cutoff and fixed problem. Had I used an ohm meter first I would have determined problem before having ordered heating element and fuse, as both had resistance. I wast just lazy and ordered the took the most common failed components first before taking dryer back off.
